ATLANTA (AP) - Powerful thunderstorms were rolling across northwest Georgia around daybreak as a line of severe storms moved into the state from Alabama.
The National Weather Service issued a special weather statement shortly before 8 a.m. Friday, warning of storms with 45-mph gusts moving across the northwest Georgia counties of Whitfield, Murray, Walker, Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd and Gordon counties.
A tornado watch covered much of northern and central Alabama, but no such watch had been issued for Georgia.
